Despite a recent bump in oil prices, the industry remains largely in retreat as large companies such as Marathon Oil, Apache and ConocoPhillips continue to announce plans to slash capital budgets.

With the oil and gas industry already feeling the drain of skilled workers and executives leaving due to retirements, there is some fear a prolonged decline will hasten further departures of valued personnel. Layoffs throughout the oil patch have already surpassed the 100,000 mark worldwide, according to Bloomberg.

Could the largest energy deal in over a decade begin a new wave of mergers and acquisitions? Is LNG really the future? How Will ExxonMobil Respond? And perhaps more importantly, does the mega-deal between Royal Dutch Shell and BG Group portend the end of the bear market for oil?

Shell announced April 8 that it agreed to buy BG Group for an eye-popping $70 billion.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Get your butt out of Albany and go see how the rest of your state lives. Or you might not have much of a state left.

One memory that stands out from my 1970s tenure as a reporter in New York’s Southern Tier is that of an economy stuck in reverse. Broome County centers around Binghamton, a city of 47,000 that has lost nearly half its population since the 1950s.

A small British oil company has found a bonanza of potentially billions of barrels of oil beneath a field near London’s Gatwick Airport. The only problem is how much of the oil is accessible.

UK Oil and Gas Investments (UKOG) said April 9 that 3,000 feet of exploratory drilling at Wytch Farm in the Weald Basin, a rural area just north of the airport, discovered a “world-class potential resource.” The area is now referred to as “Britain’s Dallas.” It was the deepest well dug in the region in three decades.

Members of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) are taking concrete steps to reduce methane emissions from their systems and have made commitments to find ways to curb releases even further.

PORTLAND, OR – Erickson Incorporated won a contract with a TransCanada’s Mexican subsidiary to transport more than pipeline segments to the site of a new rural infrastructure project that will bring natural gas to the state of Sinaloa.

The agreement with Group Desarrollo Infaestructura, SA de CV (GDI) guarantees the use of an S-64 E Aircrane to assist in the external load transport of segments to complete the 329-mile Topolobampo Project. This project is a first for Erickson within the construction services market in Mexico.

While everyone is watching oil prices bounce around at low levels, natural gas prices are also at their lowest levels in years.

Crude oil is filling up in storage tanks around the country, but natural gas follows more of a seasonal pattern. Between the warmer months of April through October, natural gas producers build up inventories. Then in the colder months, U.S. businesses and consumers burn through some of that storage to keep warm.

With the increase of natural gas production throughout the United States, the LNG market is growing at a rapid pace. Due to that growth, there has been a significant increase in development of small-scale, mid-scale, and large-scale LNG facilities, as well as expansion opportunities of existing facilities.

Proper design of a facility concept will start with the application of good engineering practices and relevant design standards followed by a preliminary siting and feasibility study to determine whether a particular parcel of land is appropriate for the proposed project.

SCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) — New York landowners along the planned 124-mile Constitution Pipeline are getting details of a second major natural gas pipeline proposed to cut through their property, this one a 325-mile link from Pennsylvania to New England.

Construction workers in economically distressed southern New York are ecstatic about the job possibilities, but landowners who have been fighting the first pipeline for three years are dismayed at the prospect of going through the whole process a second time.
